There are several other PCs that are remotly conecting to this machine and once they all are connected + person being on the PCs and working some excel calculation etc lack of RAM show its face.
If I understand correctly, other users connect to YOUR PC for business/work.
Maybe you should look into getting a dedicated server for other users to connect to, so they don't use your PC.

Hi DavidE, thank you for getting involved in this topic.

Here are some extra info...

Yes, there are 2-4 PCs all on remote locations (different cities) which use RDC in order to conect to this windows 7 machine.
All these PCs are connected in the VPN so they connect over this virtual network.

Also they usually work symultaniously which means they are working at the same time, concurent sessions.

(Dont ask me how I manage to get more then 1 user at the time over RDC... its a secret )

And yes, there is a person sitting on that computer working through out the working hours.

Yes this PC is quite loaded but usually everything is working fine. RAM is the bottleneck. 8 Gb of ram would perfectly suite my needs.

Yes server would be a great to have, but I dont have it nor do I have the funds to buy one, at least not at this time...

It would probably help you if you post screen prints of Task Manager, Resource Monitor, etc. so we can see what you have running when you have performance problems.

Hi Dolke,
Just a thought the loss of the 1GB+, is down to the allocated dedicated RAM for the Graphics card.
On your other machines is there a compatible card that has less, mine only takes 400MB, that you could swop it with???

I have stand alone graphics... I7 860 doesnt have the graphics chip as part of CPU package.

Im not sure that I can do what you are suggesting...

P.S.

Graphic card currently in the machine is:

ATI Radeon HD 4350.

I`m sure it`s already been said, but you can only put the fastest ram that the board will support, (for instance) if you put in PC2-6400, but the motherboard only supports PC2-5300, then the motherboard will only run the memory at 5300 speed.

The motherboard specs should tell you all you need to know

And as always, don`t be afraid to AddRAM

As I said, Im not sure that adding more the 4Gb of ram on a 32bit system can do anything...

Regarding the speed my mobo supports up to 16gb one of these DDR3 1066/1333/1600*/2000*/2133*

Im guessing * means I need to update the Bios in order to use those...

Right now I have 2 x 2 Gb of PC3 10700 whish is I guess DDR3 1066.

How significant preformance gain would be usage of DDR3 2133 instead of DDR3 1066...of course same amount 4 Gb?

You won`t notice much of a difference.

Have you ever even tried to install these programs on a 64 bit system ? Because Windows 7 has a folder for 32 and 64 bit.

Well I still reckon say 6GB RAM on that machine would be worth a try because even if it opens up the tiniest bit more memory. It is going to cost you not much at all and if say it gives you 4GB usable rather than 2.96GB then surely (it makes sense to me at least) and get the max speed RAM as the machine will support as Addram has said.

What have you got to lose??
